A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. If the main domain name is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. Since the website hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and control them. With fast access links, you will also be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
